OUR DREAM FOR A ZERO-WASTE FUTURE
American Family Insurance has an ambitious goal to achieve zero waste by 2025 to help make a meaningful difference for our communities, our environment and the people we serve. When we responsibly manage our waste and reduce our environmental impact, we create healthier and safer communities – the places our employees and customers call home.
In 2020, we implemented centralized waste collection systems throughout our buildings, removing individual trash bins from employee desks and installing sorting stations in common areas. This change was an efficient way to put the power of recycling into the hands of our colleagues, empowering us as individuals to help our planet.
MANAGING OUR DIVERSE RESOURCES
We recognize our connection to the environment. Our goal is stewardship of our land resources to benefit a sustainable future for our employees, communities and customers.
American Family uses best practices in design, restoration and maintenance to manage our diverse land resources. We also partner with local universities, industry professionals and our own specialists to convert some areas into native lands, which helps protect wildlife, harnesses carbon underground and provides a natural environment for employees and customers. We're striving for 25% native landscape at our properties nationwide by 2030 and we're nearly halfway to meeting that goal.
